Nachdem Sie im ersten Schritt analysiert haben, welche und wie viele Ihrer Produkte durch die Konkurrenz angeboten werden, sollten Sie jetzt einen aktuellen Preisvergleich zur Konkurrenz ziehen und diese Ergebnisse analysieren. Durch die Analyse der Produktpreise Ihrer Wettbewerber können Sie unterschiedliche Fragen beantworten, zum Beispiel auf welchem Niveau Preise gesetzt werden können, ob Ihre Preise für die gewählte Positionierungsstrategie zu hoch oder zu niedrig angesetzt wurden oder ob Ihre Preise überhaupt wettbewerbsfähig sind.

xAd’s first step was to expand its use of location data. “We wanted to move beyond just the where, and use location data to define the who and the what of audience targeting,” Monica Ho, xAd’s CMO, told GeoMarketing in 2015. After all, while a consumer’s proximity to a Denny’s can be significant, targeting someone who has been to and enjoys their local Denny’s will often prove more successful — whether or not they happen to be near the restaurant at the time they see the ad.
When using the Keyword Explorer, Ahrefs will also produce the "parent topic" of the keyword you looked up, as you can see in the screenshot above, underneath the Keyword Difficulty meter. A keyword's parent topic is a broader keyword with higher search volume than your intended keyword, but likely has the same audience and ranking potential -- giving you more a valuable SEO opportunity when optimizing a particular blog post or webpage.

Increasing smartphone penetration will create the scale required to drive geo-location business models forward, and kick-start advertiser spend in a big way. And major infrastructure developments within NFC and mobile payments will also help demand for geo-targeted advertising to surge by closing the loop and facilitating the entire process, from ad view to final purchase, to be conducted on a mobile phone.

Angesichts dieser vielfältigen Ansätze und Werkzeuge entsteht schnell der Eindruck, die Wettbewerbs- und Konkurrenzanalyse sei vor allem eine Fleißarbeit. Dieser Eindruck täuscht nicht – der dafür erforderliche Aufwand ist allerdings gerechtfertigt. Im Rahmen der Marktanalyse im Businessplan geben deine Untersuchungen sehr detailliert darüber Auskunft, wie hoch deine Chancen für eine erfolgreiche Positionierung am Markt stehen. Diese Informationen sind vor allem für potenzielle Geldgeber und Entscheider bei Zuschüssen sowie für mögliche Geschäftspartner relevant.

Best used to reach users who: live or move about in a certain area, for whom you have other data like preferences or demographic info Best used to find users who: are nearby your store, venue, or service; users who are in your parking lot, or entering a mall, for example  Best used to reach users who: are in a certain aisle of your store; who are on a certain bus or train; who are moving through a space like a museum
For example, assume your search ad generated 5,000 impressions in one day, of which 100 visitors have come to your site, and three have converted for a total profit (not revenue!) of $300. In this case, a single visitor for that keyword is worth $3 to your business. Those 5,000 impressions in 24 hours could generate a click-through rate of between 18-36% with a #1 ranking (see the Slingshot SEO study for more on potential click-through rates), which would mean 900-1800 visits per day, at $3 each, or between 1 and 2 million dollars per year. No wonder businesses love search marketing!
How much is a keyword worth to your website? If you own an online shoe store, do you make more sales from visitors searching for "brown shoes" or "black boots"? The keywords visitors type into search engines are often available to webmasters, and keyword research tools allow us to find this information. However, those tools cannot show us directly how valuable it is to receive traffic from those searches. To understand the value of a keyword, we need to understand our own websites, make some hypotheses, test, and repeat—the classic web marketing formula.
A quality ad account in 2018, according to Google, is an “autopiloted” account; the more options that are delegated to Google Ads, the better. However, even if Google is now able to decide on its own which banner size will fit best on a particular website, it is still your responsibility to provide catchy text, relevant images, and the right keywords.
1. Branding or converting strategy. One of the first things to consider in developing a keyword strategy is what you want to accomplish when you reach your target audience. Do you just want to generate an impression for branding purposes or do you want to invite them to your place where you get them to make a purchase? Here are three types of strategies to consider:
If you are launching in a competitive category and you know this to be the case, then you may indeed have to invest more heavily at the start to get ahead. It obviously varies by product and category, and this is why we often advise new sellers to go for non-competitive categories with high demand. That’s not to say you should never launch in a competitive category though – and props to you for going for it!
Use the search intent of a keyword to help determine what sort of page it should be used on. Informational keywords should be used on pages optimized for a branding campaign with content such as how to guides or product comparison articles. Avoid using these pages to target more specific in-market keywords. Those searchers have no use for a how-to guide or product comparisons. Use those to target your product pages that include specs, reviews, options and, most importantly, price and the "buy now" button. Of course, the “buy now” button could also be the email sign-up page or contact information form, depending on the type of goals you’re targeting.

You’ve probably been hearing more and more about retargeting in the couple of years or so, and for good reason too. Retargeting campaigns use cookies to keep track of the internet users who visit your site so that you can continue to market to them once they leave. Have you ever shopped for an item and then suddenly noticed it following you around on other sites? That’s retargeting. And believe it or not, it really works.
Examples like the above support metrics that find geotargeting doubles the performance of all kinds of marketing methods, from email campaigns to paid search. Per data from the Local Search Association’s LSA Insights database, it also doesn’t matter what vertical your business is in.  The click-through rate for geotargeted mobile display ads was higher than the industry benchmark for all verticals.

Paid search strategy involves up-front and ongoing attention. Many PPC campaigns never realize their potential because companies fail to complete the last step in this six-step strategic process. Testing is all-important to every AdWords strategy, because no matter how carefully the first five steps are completed, user behavior is never 100% predictable. A campaign that appears to everyone as rock solid in theory can still fall short, and sometimes, campaigns scribbled out on a cocktail napkin generate terrific sales leads. But testing always leads to continuous campaign improvement — provided testing adheres to best practices and meaningful results can be collected. Make sure you budget accordingly and hire a PPC firm with documented testing expertise.
From my understanding: Advertising Cost of Sales = total ad spend/attributed sales, while Average Cost of Sales = net income/selling price. Ideally, you would not want to avoid spending more on ads than your net income, because then you’d be losing money. Therefore you would ultimately want to keep your Advertising Cost of Sales and Average Cost of Sales aligned?
You can use multiple different exclusion zones if you have an extremely particular region that you’re looking to target. The only caveat here is that you have to make sure you’re not being too narrow with your behavioral and demographic targeting. When you focus on too small a region, the size of your audience can get so small that it becomes practically impossible for Facebook to actually deliver your advertisements.
It’s all about repeated exposure—while your previous site visitors browse other websites, your retargeting provider will show them ads for your services and products. Using retargeting, you can entice visitors back to your website and effectively convert these digital window shoppers into customers for your business. In fact, potential customers who are retargeted with display ads are 70 percent more likely to convert. Now, doesn’t that sound nice?
Conducting PPC marketing through Google Ads is particularly valuable because, as the most popular search engine, Google gets massive amounts of traffic and therefore delivers the most impressions and clicks to your ads. How often your PPC ads appear depends on which keywords and match types you select. While a number of factors determine how successful your PPC advertising campaign will be, you can achieve a lot by focusing on:
Think about what else is around you. Don’t just think about where you are; think about what’s around you. Are you a restaurant near a stadium or an airport? Encourage people to stop by after the big game, before that Ed Sheeran concert, or for a graduation celebration in your ad copy. If you’re a boutique fitness studio, advertise to people who are health-conscious and attending the farmer’s market nearby. Put these suggestions into your copy to increase in-store events.
This is a particularly useful strategy for local businesses (or any business that takes calls, really) to target people who are likely to call them directly from a search query. With Call Extensions you can easily add a click-to-call button to your mobile ads and phone numbers to your desktop ads. Additionally, you can track customers who make calls from your website using Website Call Conversions.
Bei der Entwicklung einer Wettbewerbsanalyse ist es wichtig, im Voraus klar zu definieren, was man eigentlich über die Konkurrenz wissen möchte. Durch Befragung von Verbrauchern können Informationen erlangt werden, die nicht offensichtlich sind und erst durch strategisches Fragen ans Licht kommen. So könnte es interessant sein, zu wissen, warum Verbraucher eigentlich eine bestimmte Marke oder einen Anbieter bevorzugen.
Was die Darstellung im Businessplan betrifft: Es ist auf keinen Fall sinnvoll und notwendig, eine vollständige Wettbewerbsanalyse inklusive sämtlicher Kennzahlen, Strategien, Stärken und Schwächen vorzulegen. Ziel deiner Untersuchungen ist es herauszufinden, wie du dich mit deinem Unternehmen am besten positionierst, um erfolgreich durchstarten zu können. Insofern reicht es völlig aus, lediglich die wichtigsten Erkenntnisse und deine Schlussfolgerungen in übersichtlicher Form deinem Businessplan hinzuzufügen.
In summary, these are but a few of the examples of how geography plays such an important part in creating customized and targeted marketing campaigns. Consumers respond better to relevant marketing which means that ROI of targeted campaigns will increase. Mobile consumers make geography one of the best ways to target while technology and data make doing so a real advantage to those who use it. Sometimes it takes a little creativity, but it is worth the effort. Especially for the business of local.
The final and most important metric is conversion. Make sure that you set up your conversion goals within your analytics. That way you can see which keywords are not only driving traffic but out of that traffic what percentage is converting. That is how you can measure keyword success. If you’re not doing this, then it becomes more difficult to identify your highest performing keywords.

Here’s where artifacts like user personas may come in handy. A persona should clearly outline what potential customers want and how they plan to get it. It’s your job to map their needs to content you create, using the list of keywords as a guideline for topics. That said, since they’re based on assumptions and not real user input, personas shouldn’t be a replacement for user research and testing. If your buying cycle is long and complicated, a customer journey mapping exercise could also help you identify wants and needs during individual steps of the cycle. Software service Autopilot HQ has a great post about how to map content to customer needs throughout their journey. 
If I have quite a lot solid keywords which convert well in my manual campaign, may I set auto campaign and put all of these keywords from manual campaign as negative? The purpose of this action is to avoid pay for them twice (on auto and manual campaign) and just use auto campaign for search maybe some new cheap keywords which also can convert quite good…
